Newnan Drive-In

The small town of Newnan had a no frills drive-in located right outside of town. The 485 car capacity drive-in was huge fo a small town, which might have been the reason it had only one drive-in. It was owned by LAM Amusements who were located in Rome, Georgia, and ran several North Georgia theatres, most today would consider to be in Atlanta.

The above address will map accurately to the location of the drive-in, which is visible on Google Earth using historic aerial imagery.

Here is a USGS topo map which notes the location of the drive-in, courtesy of Earth Explorer and USGS.

The location of the drive in is actually south of Lake Ridge Way on U.S. Highway 29. The house on Lake Ridge closest to the highway would’ve been where the screen was located.
